New Policy

Hello there,

It is with great regret that I announce a new policy here. There will be zero tolerance of intolerance.

This community is built to build people up. It is meant to be encouraging and supportive. I believe we have achieved that. I would not have thought that this would have to be spelled out.

I am not naive enough to believe that everyone here holds the same opinions that I do. If you want to take sides in some political/social/medical/racial debate and want to post somewhere else and then come here to say that you wrote a 5k essay, we will congratulate your efforts. You may not post your opinions here, if you do you will be out of the comm.

I should not have to say that if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all, but apparently it needs to be said.

Should you have a problem with this, you can privately message me or haldoor and we can have a conversation.

We’re moving forward, and we are going to have a massively productive month, people!!! We’ve got this!!! We are awesome!
